Well I tried. My first attempt at making bagels. Not true….I made gluten free ones once a few years ago for my sister. They didn’t turn out much better than this really..
I can’t call them bagels really because the hole in the middle disappeared.
Am I disappointed? Yes. Will I try again? definitely!
The recipe is one I found on the internet :
450g plain flour,15g yeast, 375g warm water, 60g sugar, 5g salt.
Into a mixing bowl with everything. Mix until it forms a stiff dough (10 minutes), let rest 1 hour. Cut into 12 portions and shape into bagels. Let rest 20 minutes. Carefully put into boiling water, a couple at a time, for 1 minute on each side. Place on baking tray. Brush with egg white, sprinkle with stuff and bake 25 minutes at 220 degrees.
Did all that. Got a soggy bread roll with poppy seeds on it.
They did smell and taste good though….
I WILL try again……
